Do you have access to the firewall settings?


If you are going to use port 8000 it needs to be opened for incoming and outgoing traffic.


When most firewalls are activated they have port 8000 closed by default.

Subject: [Icecast] NAT and Playlist Question


Brief backstory, previous admin is gone and the previous server died.  What I could gather was it may have been running Icecast.  I setup Icecast on a new CentOS 7 server and the server sits behind a firewall.  The links from the users web site points to and internal address for internal users and an link to an external address.


I created a listen.pls playlist with the following:




File1=http://<INTERNAL IP>:8000/


The website points to this playlist file and it works fine.  However, when I use the external link offsite I get an error that it cannot download the listen.pls file and won't play the stream.  Should this work as I have it configured?  How should I configure Icecast to work behind a NAT firewall for internal and external users?
